over the weekend i attended a kentucky derby themed event in support of ucsf benioff children's hospital at a beautiful home in ross. the backyard was buzzing with ladies in spring dresses and a myriad of hats and gentlemen suited up in a rainbow of pastels. i opted for a monochromatic look pulling out one of my favorite dresses that has worked for many occasions, black suede wedges (so as not to sink into the lawn!) and topped it off with a bow-shaped fascinator. the mint juleps and pimm's cups were flowing and m.c. andrew firestone (of bachelor-fame) kept the bid cards flying high. thanks to the ucsf benioff children's hospital ambassadors for putting together a lovely afternoon for a very worthy cause.
